    Hyslop gives the following excellent explanation of the Logical Definition, which as he states is the proper meaning of the term in Logic. He states:

    "The rules which regulate Logical Definition are as follows:

    1. A definition should state the essential attributes of the species defined.

    2. A definition must not contain the name of word defined. Otherwise the definition is called a circulus in definiendo.

    3. The definition must be exactly equivalent to the species defined.

    4. A definition should not be expressed in obscure, figurative, or ambiguous language.

    5. A definition must not be negative when it can be affirmative."
